Catch up...

{sigh}... Seems like I haven't had any free time.  Well maybe that because I haven't.  Here is a quick catch up on the past couple of weeks. 

Marley is now eating mostly chunky foods.  I've made several new recipes for her and she has loved all of them.  She is doing such a great job!!!  She is also able to sit herself up from a crawling position and is able to pull herself up to standing position.  She's just growing up too darn fast :(

Lily got her very first hair cut yesterday.  She did a super job sitting still.  She had about 1 1/2 cut off and it looks so nice now.  Lily is also anxiously awaiting preschool to start.  She still thinks it is going to be "Ballerina School".  Too funny...

Lily said the funniest thing the other day... She was coloring at her table while I was doing dishes and she came running to me saying "there not working!!!"  She was holding 2 white crayons in her hand.  Cutest thing ever!

Lily has a HUGE love for my flowers.  So huge that she has practically picked ALL of them off the plants. 

Last Monday, the girls picture was "picture of the day" on the Morning Blend.  Brian had taken this picture one day while I was at work then emailed it to Channel 3.  They chose it!

Here is Marley standing up for the 1st time... also while mommy was at work!

The girls have been playing together more and more.  Its so cute to see them interact.  Hopefully they will be best friends!

Then last Thursday we were all blessed with a lovely storm.  Thank heavens Brian got off work early or otherwise his truck would have been totaled.  Council Bluffs received baseball sized hail and the jail was hit very hard.  We missed the hail at home but lost power for a little over 8 hours.  It went off shortly after 7:30 pm and didn't come back on until after 4:00 am.  Just in time for me to get up for work.  We had tons of candles burning and the girls did very well considering...

Marley in the swing for the 1st time!

Ready for her FIRST haircut!

it was sooo long...

she even had gel in her hair... so pretty!

Marley's new food... Indian spiced lentil stew, quinoa with black beans and bananas, and cheesy broccoli casserole.  I also baked ginger plums.
